(Note: First two pictures are of the system in the other case as they were taken before the Phanteks one arrived)
I began of building by rebuilding my parents' pc just so I knew I could actually do it. Once I finished that I began looking for new parts of my own. I originally bought a cheap case on Amazon by some brand I've never heard of and hated it when it arrived. I then bought the motherboard first with some gift cards I got for my birthday along with the ram. After a few weeks of waiting Christmas came and I got enough gift cards and extra cash to buy the rest of the components. But hey, for a 15 year old kid's "first" pc, its decent.
Case I love this case. It has enough storage options for what I need but not excessive. My only problem is that the power supply shroud will not allow me to mount my gpu in the bottom socket so I can not use my existing wireless adapter (my router can only be in a certain room which is on a completely different floor from my pc).
Motherboard It get the job done. With a lot of sata ports and plenty of usb.
CPU Its AMD. I know. I chose amd only because of its price
Cooler I like it but it actually cut my hand while I was installing it so 9/10. Kappa.
GPU It's a bit old but my friend gave me it for free along with the psu. It's good for my light gaming and a definite improvement from my old all-in-one.
Hard Drive I plan on getting an ssd later on but this is just from my old pc and its treated me well.
Monitor Hasn't arrived yet but has pretty good reviews
